Kenneth Law
A Canadian man who was charged on May 9 with two counts of aiding and abetting the suicide deaths of two people in the Peel Region, allegedly through the online sale of a legal substance that is lethal in high concentrations, has now 12 additional charges resulting in 14 total charges for counselling/aiding suicide.

Codi Wilson, reported on August 29 for CP 24 that Kenneth Law is now facing 12 new charges in Ontario for counselling or aiding suicide. Wilson reported:
Kenneth Law, who was previously charged by Peel Regional Police with two counts of counselling or aiding suicide, now faces 12 new charges in connection with deaths in regions across Ontario.

Police said the new charges involve four deaths in Toronto, three in York Region, one in Durham Region, one in London, Ont., one in Thunder Bay, one in Waterloo, and one additional death in Peel Region. All charges will now be heard at the Newmarket courthouse, police confirmed.

At a news conference at Peel police headquarters on Tuesday, York Regional Police Insp. Simon James, who is leading the multi-jurisdictional case, told reporters that the victims range in age from 16 to 36.
On August 25, 2023 I published an article about Kenneth being investigated by UK authorities for aiding the suicide deaths of at least 88 people.

Imogen Nunn
On August 27, 2023 Jon Woodward reported for CP 24 that:
The British mom of a TikTok star is coming forward demanding justice after she found out her daughter died using a so-called suicide kit allegedly sold by a Canadian man, as deaths possibly tied to Kenneth Law rise to over 100.

Louise Nunn said it was sickening to learn that the death of her daughter Imogen, known as “Deaf Immy” to 710,000 TikTok followers, was one of 88 British people local police say died after ordering products from Law’s websites over a two-year period.

Nunn said it was heartbreaking to learn of other deaths months and years before Imogen’s, and believes many lives could have been saved if authorities had acted earlier.
The new charges include a 16-year-old suicide death in Ontario. CBC News reported on May 8 that 17-year-old Anthony Jones from Michigan allegedly died in connection to Law's suicide kit.

Law appeared for a bail hearing on Friday August 25, 2023 and pled not guilty. Woodward reported that:
Police in Canada have warned about the websites, allegedly run by Mississauga’s Kenneth Law, ...Peel Police said at the time of his arrest that they had tracked some 1,200 products to 40 countries.
Wilson's report stated:
While Peel police first began their investigation in the spring, James said it is believed that Law started operating the websites sometime in late 2020.
Law claims that he is innocent of the charges and had no control over what people did with his suicide packages. Law was selling a legal product, but he was packaging it in a lethal dose and he was promoting and selling it for the alleged purpose of suicide.

Possibly hundreds of deaths could have been prevented if Canadian authorities had stopped the sale of the suicide kits when they first learned of the websites and the suicide deaths.

If this man can be charged, perhaps the person suggesting that a psychological patient seeking counseling may want to consider MAids because there is a long waiting list to see a counselor And even longer list to get a hospital bed,should be charged with "counseling to commit suicide?
